Back to the Creek and to the Easel (for now)

After what felt like a long cold winter Friday and Saturday’s warm sunshine felt like such a gift. I took Dini and Maggie back to one of our favorite places for walking, swimming, and inspiration.

Miami Art Week 2017

Miami Art Week 2017

Just back from Miami Art Week. I spent 3 days walking, talking, and Ubering to and fro with my friend, artist Shari Epstein who has done this before (multiple times) and knows the ropes of navigating the the city; which venues to catch, roads to avoid (mega traffic) in a very limited time. We walked, we […]

Under the Influence in Jersey City

Under the Influence in Jersey City

Page after page, the catalogue is an eruption of color in splotches and patterns on vessels that barely contain, yet seem to embody forces of nature…. “Artists get inspiration from the entirety of the universe — from every-day objects to profound philosophies. The […]

Poetic Moment

She was not sure what idea she wished to express but the thought that a poetic moment had touched upon her took life within her like an infant hope. She stepped onward bravely.   James Joyce. I took a little liberty with Joyce’s quote, making it gender appropriate, but I love the sentiment. Often I don’t […]
